Christmas is a busy time for everyone, and the youth are no exception! This holiday season has been filled with family visits, Christmas activities, and holiday concerts!
The Jr. High enjoyed getting in the holiday mood by decorating the church for Christmas! The youth had so much fun setting up and decorating the Christmas trees in the sanctuary and fellowship hall, setting up the nativity scene in the worship center, and hanging the greens throughout the sanctuary and the wreaths throughout the church, listening to Christmas music all the while.
Both the Jr. and Sr. High youth look forward to setting up and lighting the luminaries on Christmas Eve. The candles that line the drive way and the front and back parking lot before and during the Christmas Eve service are a beautiful tradition, and the youth and those that help us put in a lot of work to make it happen.
We are all getting excited for the adventures that the new year will bring us. The Sr. High will be attending the District Winter Retreat hosted by Camp Swatara in January, and both groups are already making plans for our annual summer work camps!
